MKM, the Maniago production powerhouse, has a new knife design on the way. It’s called the Lov, a Jesper Voxnaes design, made for compact, ergonomic, relatively affordable everyday carry.
Voxnaes falls into that category of multivalent makers who both have a specific, distinct personal style, but are capable of working outside of said style when the mood strikes. The Lov isn’t completely divorced from hallmark Voxnaes features, but, with its more angular profile and straightforward blade shape, it stands apart from other popular Voxnaes projects like the Pilar or the Dapper. Like the Pilar, however, it is a smallish knife, with a blade length of 2.83 inches. But the drop point looks ready to punch above its weight, with a robust, broad profile and a bladeside finger choil, perfect for choking up for extra control or leverage.
Is there a more prolific designer than Vox? I wonder if there are more new Vox designs being produced across the industry, or more new MagnaCut models being produced across the industry.
